RIP Jason :(
He used to drive me crazy in middle school, but I will never forget his funny ways.
By the way he went to Los Cerros Middle School, not El Cerro.

Jason you will be greatly missed. I wish there was more that I could have said to you while you were part of my life. I don't understand why these things happen. May God give your parent peace and strength during this difficult time. Your extended family in San Jose will miss you greatly.

R.I.P. Jason. I miss you so much. Although I am so glad I was about to talk to you on your birthday, there was still so much more I wish I could have said to you. You are so sweet and I will never forget you. I know you will be watching over us.

Jason, you were a dear friend to me and really touched my life. You will always be a guiding light in my heart. Thanks for the incredible amount of laughter you brought me. You helped me through some pretty tough times more than you will ever know. To his parents, he will remain an inspiration deep into my soul forever. Thank you for such a great son!!

Although I only knew you a short while, I will never forget the bond we shared, we laughed together so many times, we shared our hopes, dreams and fears, and I will always remember your childlike wisdom and fabulous smile, (and your Chilean french toast.) My heart goes out to your family and I can only hope God had a bigger and better plan for you in heaven. You will be missed my friend!
